Out of Mind
Detective Johnny "Blue" Heron is lured away from stargazing on his fire escape by a wealthy socialite who wants to track down her husband’s lover. It appears to be a straightforward task for a private investigator, but the trail quickly muddies. Blue is chased by hit men and seduced by the suspected lover. A fight in an abandoned pipe factory, a headless body on the railroad tracks, and the curious involvement of homeless kittens makes Out Of Mind a fascinating read. Michael Burke has produced a fast moving mystery that combines a tightly woven plot with Blue’s philosophical musing, sexual shenanigans, and humor.
